The bar has reopened a partnership with Australia’s most respected winemaker, Penfolds, to offer a curated wine selection that caters to every occasion and everyone, from novice drinkers to seasoned wine enthusiasts. Taste a range of distinctive ‘House Styles’ that are an ultimate expression of the brand’s time-honoured tradition of only sourcing the best fruit from the best regions.

Also on the wine menu are full-bodied and fruit-forward wines such as Napa Valley’s Stag’s Leap and Beaulieu Vineyard, Australia’s Wolf Bass and Coldstream Hills as well as New Zealand’s Squealing Pig. Alternatively, you can also choose from a selection of terroir-driven Old World Wines that hail from classic winemaking states like Bordeaux and Tuscany. All glasses are priced from S$12 and wine bottles start at a price of S$55.

Apart from its vast selection of wines, the restaurant’s wine bar also offers a diverse collection of spirits, beers, and cocktails that might interest you instead if you aren’t a fan of wine. Enjoy handcrafted cocktails (S$25) such as Whiskey Sour, Kir Royale, and Cosmopolitan, all while enjoying the magnificent view of the sunset or the city’s night lights.

While you imbibe, do order some yummy bites to accompany the alcohol. Choose from a delectable assortment of sweet and savoury treats such as Kristal Caviar (S$150 for 30g), Duck Rilette served with Plum chutney and sourdough toast (S$26), and Foie Gras Terrine and Pistachio Madeleine (S$12).

P.S. Due to the recent heightened measures in response to the spike in COVID-19 cases in Singapore, SKAI Bar will only be reopening in early August as part of its efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus. However, you can still head down to the restaurant for a taste of exquisite grills.
